More about Ayala Brut Champagne ... Ayala is owned by the Bollinger people, so there is no surprise that this is exceptional Champagne.

Pale gold in color with a fine mousse, the wine is extremely aromatic on the nose. On the palate, it is quite dry and shows great finesse and complexity.

Pinot Noir gives the wine richness and a long finish while Chardonnay, from the finest soils of the Côte des Blancs, adds delicacy, liveliness and freshness. Pinot Meunier, mainly from the Marne Valley, gives the wine an appealing fruitiness.

Ideal as an aperitif, it will pair perfectly with sea food, caviar, scallops, lobster, crab, salmon… Sushis and Asian food are also a very good pairing. Cheeses: Soft and mouldy cheeses such as Boursault, Coulommiers, Chaource, Brie, Brillat-Savarin… Desserts: Major parings include crumble with red berries or figs, almond paste, frangipane pastries such as the French "galette des rois”.

Judged best wine over £10 matched with Smoked Salmon; What Food What Wine Competition (UK), 12 July 2011

"A lovely creamy yeasty fizz that cuts through the richness of the wine; the flavours softening the smoke and melting into the salmon, the oilness rounding out the edges of the wine. A superlative match.”
